Back should the Radeon RX 470 was announced I made the statement which a decently overclocked RX 470 can match an RX 480 in games. ?Well, we finally have our face to face an aftermarket sort of the RX 470 in the form of the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 470

The Nitro+ RX 470 is a real charged up type of the RX 470 weighing a boosted TDP of 175w within the normal 120w in the RX 470 plus the 150w TDP of the RX 480. ?Referring packing 3x 10mm heatpipes to eliminate the heating from the trim down Polaris 10 core as well as being amazed by two Dual-X 95mm fans. ?Sapphire has additionally revamped their TriXX 3.0 software to now keep the full RGB lighting discovered on the Nitro+ RX 480 in addition to their new ‘Fan Health Check’ which enables users to determine status from the fans on the card. ?Should one of the fans be defective or perhaps in need for cleaning they can be easily removed for convenient cleaning/replacing because of the new Quick Connect Service.

The Card is which is 1121MHz base by using a 1260MHz boost clock for the core as well as the 4GB model we’re thinking about features a memory clock of 1750MHz on an effective 7000MHz memory speed for a 256-Bit bus. ?Ditching the normal I/O favoring an increasingly flexible design the Nitro+ RX 470 features 2xHDMI 2.0b, 2x DisplayPort 1.4, and a sinking Dual Link DVI-D output to satisfy nearly every configuration.

This RX 470 overclocked very well, above is an type of running the TriXX 3.0 software while dialing in an overclock. ?I had put together no issues running synthetics along at the show numbers, but also in games it was not stable. ?Found 1425MHz with +25mV and +50% Power Limit to be a superb sweet destination for this card.

But just how well can this card perform, well come along in this video review when we examine the cardboard, it’s features, along with where it supports against other cards inside 1080p gaming space.
